For the article about ETH

The cryptocurrency Ethereum, which has the ticker ETH, is a digital asset that has been ranked second in the world of cryptocurrencies in popularity for a long time. For the first time information about this currency appeared in 2013, then it was called “Bitcoin 2.0”. The network itself Ethereum was launched only in 2015 after the successful ICO.

The developers of this Blockchain project are **Gavin Wood and Vitalik Buterin **, it was they who first came up with the idea to create not a copy of the Bitcoin cryptocurrency, but a unique platform for creating decentralized p2p applications that use the technology of “smart contracts”, which is a computer algorithm that performs a certain action only after fulfilling the pre-established conditions of the transaction.

In the Ethereum system, every user who knows the Solidity programming language (an analogue of JavaScript) can freely create their own decentralized tokenized platform of the ERC-20 standard and immediately launch it into the global network.

Transactions on the Ethereum platform occur using two coins – ETH and GAS. ETH is the main valuable asset for transfer between users, GAS is a special intra-network coin, which is necessarily used for the successful transaction. The larger the transaction amount and the faster it needs to be carried out, the more GAS will need to be “burned”.

The system algorithm of the Ethereum cryptocurrency is called Ethash (based on the Proof-of-Work technology). This asset can be mined with the help of special mining equipment, the issue of Ethereum is ** not limited **, at the time of writing, more than 100 million coins have already been mined.

In the near future, the developers plan to switch to a special algorithm Casper (based on the Proof-of-Stake operation), which will help improve the network bandwidth and its security.
